As if the more than 500-plus guests joining SBCTA at the ribbon cutting in October was not enough of a celebration, the Redlands Passenger Rail Project (RPRP) won the Innovative Transportation Solutions Award at the recent Women’s Transportation Seminar-Inland Empire Annual Dinner. RPRP is a nine-mile regional rail project that provides additional transportation choices through the introduction of a new rail service known as Arrow. Operated by Metrolink, Arrow uses Tier 4 Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) that are powered by smaller, lower-emission diesel engines for a quieter and more energy-efficient ride. Carrie Schindler, Deputy Executive Director for SBCTA, accepted the award on behalf of the agency. As a testament to her leadership, Carrie championed and executed the project from concept to construction to completion.
